When I print colour pictures on my Epson XP900, the colours on the actual print are very different to what was on the screen at the time. I am using good quality paper quality ink why is it so different between screen and printer and whats the best way to get a similar result to what is on the screen. My last print was of a boat with a blue sky background, in my eye it was well balanced on the screen but ended up having a heavy blue tint on the actual print

Hello.

This question gets asked so often that I felt the need to make a collection of similar threads. If anyone knows of any that I have not linked to, please add them. Thanks.

Is your screen calibrated?
is your printer profiled?
do you have the icc profiles of the card?

to make a quality print the whole process must be managed in an optimal way
if one of these is not properly calibrated
you will not have acceptable results
